Everything was excellent


Hostel was small but had all the facilities and was clean. Rooms were big and no bunk beds (which is always good). Staff was helpful and gave information when required without any hesitation. Hostel could do with organizing some events in the evenings.


Loved my stay here! Met a lot of very nice and fun people and staff. It was great to have a kitchen and we were able to socialize at the dining table as well. Only two bathrooms and showers, wasn't an issue for my stay but it is hard with so many people and so few facilities. Such a great stay, would definitely recommend this hostel!!


Best hostel I've stayed at in Europe


Absolute recommend this hostel to all the friends, best value and best staff. This is the best hostel I have stay in the total 5 hostels I stayed this trip. Extremely flat price (including towel and breakfast), city centre location, triple securities (fron gete key card, hostel door key plus locker in the room). First choice in Budapest!


Nice hostel


Would definitely recommend to anyone. It is in the perfect location, the staff are totally willing to help and it's well worth the amount you pay for it. Such a bargain bargain.


Very well located, near a metro station, staff extremely nice and helpful !

Made a trip to Budapest end of August 2015. I had the luck to stay at this great hostel for a week. Booked it the day before the flight.... no problems. Free wifi, towels, lockers & breakfast, a very friendly staff, who gave me all the cool advices for individual trips, nice building and surroundings, clean rooms and located right at the trendy Jewish quarter, also very central. Great fellow guests. The street in front is a bit noisy, if it is a problem you'd better ask for a quieter room.

Nice hostel on a good location with nice facilities (kitchen, communal area, breakfast and enough bathrooms) and a friendly staff. When I was there the communal area was almost always empty so it may not be the best place for solo travellers to meet people. The dorms had single beds instead of bunkbeds which was nice for a change. I had however a really sore back after sleeping there. Could have been caused by the thin matresses and the thin pillow on the beds.


The welcoming email includes a photo of the building with an arrow which is very helpful. Excellent location. Front desk guy was helpful. Security is mixed since they give keys for the building and hostel but not for the rooms. Unlocked rooms is weird. Lockers can fit medium-sized bags but not larger. Locks provided if needed. Wooden floors, beds and doors are NOISY and mean you get woken up when someone comes in the room. Rooms need blackout curtains. The small back balcony is the best part.


We were surprised at this hostel, we hadn't expected much but we were thrilled with almost everything. Had all the basic for a great stay, no bunks which was lovely, good showers and a social area including kitchen and balcony. The staff were amazing and helped us plan our trip in Budapest and SZIGET festival making life so much easier. I loved the location and the way our bedroom balconette looked over the hustle and bustle of Budapest! FAB HOSTEL
